The First Step in Becoming a Diver


PADI Open Water is typically delivered over two weekends, the first being in a confined water or pool setting where you will learn the basic principles of diving and gear configuration. The second weekend we bring you into an open water setting, typically in Okanagan Lake, where we build upon your confined water teachings and really drive home the skills and drills that you learned.

This is a busy and fun course that you prepare you for a lifetime of diving and make you a safe and competent diver.


You will receive max certification depth of 60ft/18m (40ft/12m for juniors).
